Track Name: Beaten Path
I wake up everyday
Trying to find my place
In a world fucked up
Out of time and out of luck

I’m looking for a better way
Just trying to get ahead
Going nowhere fast
Once again I walk this beaten path

Don’t say it all came easy to me
I watched the world crack and crumble right in my hands
I leave my enemies in the past
So step aside while I walk this beaten path

I’m looking for a better way
Just trying to get ahead
Going nowhere fast
Never giving in

Don’t say it all came easy to me
I watched the world crack and crumble right in my hands
I leave my enemies in the past
So step aside while I walk this beaten path
Track Name: Sin Upon Sin
How does it feel to be the victim
How does it feel to be beaten at your own game
Fate sealed and shown no pity
A shell of your former self

Admit defeat
Cut down to size
Prison of the mind
Your thoughts are mine
Admit defeat
Cut down to size
A fools charade
Devil in disguise

How does it feel to be rejected
How does it feel to be on the other side
Tried your best to stay afloat
But now you’re sinking like a stone

Admit defeat
Cut down to size
Prison of the mind
Your thoughts are mine
Admit defeat
Cut down to size
A fools charade
I won’t be a slave

Dominated you
Took up space inside your head
You want the truth
You will confront your own deceit

How does it feel to be the victim
The evil that men do
I’ve sinned
And so have you
Track Name: Slip Away
Rotting and left to waste
I see the fear across your face
A sad image that I can’t erase
An early grave and my heart breaks

Trapped in your hell
A slave to yourself
Your fate is grey
And now, now I watch you
Slip away

What can I say
I reached out my hand
But I’m pulling it back
I wait for the day
You come clean
Or you just

Slip away
Fuck you 

Trapped in your hell
A slave to yourself
Your fate is grey
And now, now I watch you
Slip away

A clinched fist, a lost cause
My fear of losing you is gone
Don’t give a fuck
The line is drawn
I’ve moved on
Track Name: Time Marches On
Time’s not on my side
I gotta face the truth
Learned from the past
Where does that leave you
Mistakes and regret
Searching for an answer
Or just trying to forget

The past
The present
And the future
Where does that leave you

Time marches on

Are you ready or not
Walk ahead or remain to rot
Wasted days staring at the clock
Slowing down but the world won’t stop

Time has passed you by
The ignorance of youth
No lessons learned
Never seeing the proof
Mistakes and regret
Searching for an answer
Or just trying to forget

The past
The present
And the future
Where does that leave you

Time marches on

Are you ready or not
Walk ahead or remain to rot
Wasted days staring at the clock
Slowing down but the world won’t stop

Slowing down but the world won’t stop

Time marches on
Are you ready or not
Track Name: Manipulate
Your world view is upside down
Victim of your own delusions
No fear of who you cross
Burn a bridge, it’s no loss

You’ve lost control
With no remorse
Look to me like I care
But I never gave a fuck

You want a life of misery
Manipulate and played a fool
It ain’t hard to see
Damage done but it’s not enough
I take a look at all the pain you’ve caused in disgust

Guiltless
I call it a sickness
Destroying lives in your fucking path
Gained nothing, think you’re something
We won’t accept your so-called truth

You lost control
Betrayed trust
Couldn’t live the life you were dealt
Look to me like I care
But I never gave a fuck
